Proposition to Havs 13 Months In
n Year From 1800 On,
It is suggested that on January 1,
1900, a new division of the year into
ttiirteen months he instituted. It is
claimed that this is not so preposter
ous as roost people would bo likely to
consider it at tho first thought. If
such a division were made the first
twelve months would have just twen
tv-eight days, or four weeks each, and
the new month twentv-niue, to make
385, and thirty in leap years. After a
few days there would be no need to
refer to calendars, as the same day of
the week would have the same date
through the year. If January 1 were,
say Monday, every Monday would be
the 1st, 8th, loth and 22d; every
Tuesday the 2d, 9th, lGth and 2.‘!d,
and so throughout the year. The
changes of the moon would be on
aliout the same dates through the year,
and many calculations, like interest,
dates of maturing notes, Kaster Sun
day and many other important dates
would tie simplified. Although the
present generation would have to tig
uro new dates for birthdays and all
legal holidays except New Year would
be on different dates, yet the gain
would tie more than the loss, as that
would lie permanent, and the objec
tion trifling, says the Scientific Amer
The pro(K>sed change certainly has
the merit of novelty, and it is just to
say that the arguments in favor of the
metric system on the ground of utility
apply with considerable force in the
present case. We fear, however, that
the objections on the grounds of senti
■nent, which are strong in the matter
of weights and measures, would be
even stronger against the proposed re
vision of our methods of computing

by the New York Sunday World for
the beet campaign joke:
There has been much bolting this
year, and hence the story told by an
Indiana speaker to illustrate the chas
ing away of voters after false gods is
particularly good. It does not matter
to which party the speaker belonged.
According to the chronicle, a naan
was one day driving a number of
calves along a country road, when he
met another farmer driving a bull.
The animal was angry and going at
a terrific speed, with the farmer
mounted on a horse in hot pursuit.
The calves gave surprised bleats,
turned around, stuck their tails straight
out behind them and started after the
bull. In vain the owner of the younger
animals tried to stop them. His yells
were unheeded, and soon the bull and
the calves disappeared up the road in
a cloud of dust. The farmer stopped
and mopped his face, mad clear
through. Then he yelled after the
vanishing bovines:
"Go it, ye dufn fools! Foller that
bull clear out of the State! Ye’ll
find what a mistake ye have made
when supper time comes.”
X«w Breed ef Ntaeep
Tbe Agricultural Department of the
University of California is raising a
new kind of sheep that will mean
much to the wool and meat markets
It is the result of the cross breeding
of Persian and merino. Experiments
along the same lines, though not so
complete, were conducted by George
Washington with marked advantage.
Two years ago three full-blooded
rains were received from the Persian
Government and experiments were
commenced in cross breeding. The
offspring resulted in a variety admir
ably adapted to the California climate,
showing wool and meat above the
quality of any yet obtained. They
were colored white, reddish brown
and black. The wool was of the
texture between the Persian and
merino, the average length being
eight inches.
Recently the first sample of the
wool w ns offered for sale in San Fran
cisco and brought an average of 4
cents on the usual price for a pound.
The new species attain a tremendous

During one of the meetings of the
Board of Aldermen under the Tweed
administration, the representative of a
portion of one of the North end wards
arose, and was recognized by the Presi
dent as Mr. O’Day.
"Mr. President,” began Mr. O’Day,
"I have lately been traveling in Eu
rope and during my peregrinations I
visited the noble city of Vanice, the
queen, sir, av the Adriatic; the scene,
Mr. President, of Mr. Shakespeare’s
noble production, the ‘Merchant of
Vanice,’ the remarkable city av dun
geons and palaces. Sir, I was partic
ularly sthruck wid some of the features
of Vanation life. I niver in me loife
beheld anything like the gondolas av
Vanice. They are beautiful. Well, I
thought, being an Ainerikin citizen,
that I would give the benefit av me
observations abroad to me native city
on me rethurn and I made a study of
the gondolas fur that purpose. Sir,
after much consideration, I have coine
to tiie conclusion that the gondolas
wud be a pleasant picture in our Cen
tral Park. The children wud be de
lighted wid ’em, and they are not dan
gerous at all. Therefore, sir, I move
you that twinty-five gondolas be iin
ported to beautify and adorn our no
ble plisure grounds.”
"Mr. O’Day sat down, upon which
another member of the Council arose,
fie was recognized by the President as
Mr. O’Shay.
Mr. President, began Mr. O’Shav,
<)i have listened wid great attention to
the very instructive and intelligent
remarks of me friend from the North
end ward, and have been very much
imprissed wid dent. But, sir, while I
am in favor of the gondolas, I cannot
forgit that we are sint to this honor
able chamber to look afther the inter
ests of the citizens av this modern
Athens, and to administer public af
fair e<iuinomically. I was sent tiere
on an eijuinomical platform, and 1
have always been an advocate of re*
triochment. Therefore, sir, to be con
sistent wid me past reputation, f move
an amindmint to ine friend's motion,
namely, as follows:
"Kesolved, That instead of twinty
five gondolas we import only two gon
dolas—a male and faraale—and let na
ture take its course.”

Frank Sinclair is a sound money
farmer near i’onca, Neb. He was de
lighted with the result of the election,
and came into tcwn to celebrate. On
the street he met M. B. Hanson, a
neighbor and a Bryanite. Hanson
was not so well pleased with the con

game, says a dispatch to tbs Chicago
Times-Herald. Silver, be declared,
was bound to coma—the election of
190C would bring it in with a whoop.
Sinclair laughed.
“You can laugh,” said Hanson,
“but I’ll just go you $100 that the next
President is a silver man and that the
silver issue will elect him. We can
deposit the money in s bank and the
man that wins draws it out when the
1900 returns are in.”
Sinclair lugged out a roll of bills,
and the two repaired to the nearest

instructions to the cashier to turn it

One of the alleged dynamiters who
was recently released from an English
prison says he did not hear one item
)f news from the outside world in all
the years of his confinement. He did
not even know that Parnell was dead.
In our prisons, which have the same
rules of silence and abolute seclusion,
the inmates learn everything that is
going on both within and without the
prison, by a system of signals which
defies the watchfulness of the guards.
Either English prisons are better gov
erned than ours, or else the inmates
of English prisons are less shrewd and
less sly than our convicts.—New York

“Blanche, dear," said the watchful
aunt to her niece, “don’t you think
that Kred spends too much money
upon you?” relates Harper's Bazar.
"Do you think so, auntie.”
“Indeed, I do, Blanche. I’ve been
noticing, and I do think he's really
extravagant. You ought to check
him, and tell him to save his money.
You will need a good deal when you
go to housekeeping, and it is far better
for him to put in the bank the money
he is now spending on carriage rides
and luncheons and tickets to this
thing and that than be squandering it.
Think over the matter a minute or
two, dear, and you will see it a> I

“Oh, I’ve thought about it already,
auntie. I’d take your advice if I were
absolutely certain that we shall be

Origin or Tliaiikagivlag.
The following is warranted to be the
correct history of the origin of Thanks
giving Day: Once at autumn in the
early days of the colonies a severe
visaged old Puritan arose in his pew
and proposed the usual day of fasting
and prayer. There had been an
abundant harvest and the barns and
cellars were filled to overflowing. A
less severe member of the congrega
tion, who evidently enjoyed the good
things of life, offered as an amend
ment that, in view of the abundant
harvests and the other blessings of
Providence, they have instead a day
of festival and thanksgiving. The
amendment carried and that was the
beginning of our annual day of Thanks

Modern writers have some startling
forms of expression of the female eye.
“The glare, the stare, the sneer, the
invitation, the defiance, the denial,
the consent, the glance of love, the
flash of rage, the sparkling of hope,
the languishment of softness, the
squint of suspicion, the fire of jeal
ousy, the luster of pleasure, but of all
the tantalizing expressions of this
window of the human soul is that de
